Hemophilia Treatment Center: 13199 E. Montview Blvd., Suite 100
Mile High Summer Camp Leadership Retreat

The Leadership program serves male & female campers from ages 14-18. This program is built to foster independence and leadership skills not only with their bleeding disorder but throughout every aspect of their life. The Leadership campers serve as role models to the younger campers by leading program activities, assisting with cabins, and helping them learn self-infusion skills with the assistance of trained HTC nurses.

The Leadership retreat weekend is in collaboration with the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) where they learn outdoor and leaderships skills from professionals. This weekend also provides a time for the older campers to learn and bond with their peers.

Siblings are also welcome on the leadership retreat as long as space permits. See our siblings policy in the link below.

Rocky Mountain Village (Easter Seals): 2644 Co Rd 306, Georgetown, CO 80444
Mile High Summer Camp

Mile High Summer Camp is a camp hosted by The Colorado Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation and The University of Colorado Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center. Mile High Summer Camp serves campers affected with hemophilia, von Willebrand’s disease, and other rare chronic bleeding disorders from Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Nebraska.

At Mile High Camp, our vision is that our campers (ages 7-18) will embrace our camp values in order to one day take personal responsibility for their own lives and become strong advocates for their own care. Through a camper-centered program that focuses on the premise of keeping campers and staff safe, respected, and loved, we intend to empower our staff and campers to achieve these goals.
